Music made easy
I learnt clarinet about 30 years ago, and I wasn't particularly enamoured of it.
I was somewhat dubious when my husband bought me a keyboard...I remembered very little of my lower high school music.
But this book is excellent. I highly recommend it for people who know nothing of music, and for people coming from different instruments.
I've never touched a keyboard before and in one evening I'm able to play Old Mac Donald's farm, with very little practice.
Great stuff and I'm deeply impressed.
Thank you for Learning the Code!

very well written
I loved this. I already knew how to play an instument so this gave me a great refesher on the symbolds and meanings and was extremely well written. Perfect for beginers or those that need just a little extra help. Also very impressed with how he illistrated all the letter keys and hands and notes.
